Biblia. de Antigua y Nuiva. Testamento
Nothing happens in this book. Nothing. There is no plot, no conflict, and dialogue s very basic. I was looking for light reading for a trip, but this was bordering on inane.
Quick vacation read, not original in the slightest.
This was a tough read. There was no depth to the characters or their conversations. If I punched someone on a sidewalk, the person walking by would not say “Wow, where did you learn that?”
Read the first 50 pages, or rather, suffered through them. Writing was incredibly immature. „Wow, that‘s so...“ every two paragraphs. It felt like a high school novel. Terrible imagery, dull characters, and a boring storyline. Skip.
This is the same plot as her other novel.

I READ THIS BOOK IN A DAY! I JUST COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN. LOVE A GOOD LOVE STORY.
This was a cute and fun contemporary romance. It features a hilarious diverse cast of characters that I found really refreshing. I also really enjoyed the Los Angeles setting. This is my first book by the author and though previous characters from her book The Wedding Date appear, the book can be enjoyed as a stand alone.
I liked Carlos and Nikole (Nik) both individually and together. They each had some baggage haunting them and influencing their actions, but as you got to know each character it made sense why they were so hesitant to explore the possibility of more. I enjoyed seeing their friends with benefits relationship blossom and develop as they slowly let their guard down. Readers should note that the majority of the love/sex scenes are fade to black or occur off page, so if they're looking for a hot and heavy read, this is not it.
One thing I really loved about The Proposal was the relationships between Carlos and Nik's family and friends. Nik's friendship with Dana and Courtney was amazing and probably my favorite part of the book. We would all be lucky to have even 1 friend as loyal and supportive as these ladies.
The book started off very promising and I was really intrigued by the proposal (and rejection) heard round the world, but afterwards, the pacing felt a little off and seemed to stall. A lot of time was spent describing food/drinks, when I really would have liked more back story about Carlos and Nik since it was such a big part of their character arcs. When the conflict arose, I felt Carlos acted completely out of character and honestly, I wasn't sure if I truly felt that they were at the point of those types of declarations. It all wrapped up very quickly and though it was very cute, I'm not sure I was really satisfied. I think what was the most odd for me was that I didn't feel that these characters acted their supposed ages. They are in their late 20's and early 30's, but I had to remind myself of this several times. Overall, this was still an easy and enjoyable read.
